Catch the Wave-Swim for Life Foundation is a swim school with the knowledge and passion to teach special needs individuals to be safer in and around water. We understand that caring for a person with special needs often has its own set of financial obligations, and our nurturing, certified staff strive to make the benefits of these swim lessons available to all families.

Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1-14. The goal of Catch the Wave-Swim for Life Foundation is to prevent drowning, to make children safer in and around water, and to maximize efficiency of swimming strokes. We target children with disabilities, and/or from low income families, and/or of a minority status. We provide instruction to meet their individual needs through small group, semi-private, or private lessons.

Our specialized swim program uses firm, direct instruction with high praise/reward as well as visual aids, in the form of books and task cards. We plan to incorporate technology in the near future. We also use effective techniques practiced by top swimming programs across the US and have developed some of our own. Together we create a fun and safe environment in and around the water.
